I am a fan of the Ghost series of flies, and throat or not (
) I think you did it justice! The chance I tie one of these some point soon due to this inspiration? Pretty high. The chance I fish one of these this steelhead season rather than an ugly amalgamation of hooks, hook-free shanks, rabbit fur, estaz, guinea and other things? A bit less. But who knows, maybe when this last push of water calms a bit, I'll tie one on!
